Entries with the most votes:
- Stefano Consiglio submits a service which is already in its infancy, allowing travellers to tap into a community of local people in a destination to help plan a trip. A free service, Angels matches site visitors to relevant people in-resort, giving them relevant advice and providing services to the community.
